Zachary Walker The reason I love A Patient Man is because it delivers are high-caliber hardcore album with a nice touch of grown-up content as well as a range of diversity in the musical approach and the lyrical content. The studio engineering raises the bar in quality and so brings an added intensity to the brutally clear delivery of each song. In fact, the engineering is so well done you could almost get lost in listening to the album simply by paying attention to how it was recorded. Either way you look at it the album is a treat to immerse yourself in. I will say this: the album is not something you just whimsically pick up and listen to a minute of here or a minute there.

Fred F. Wildly diverse. Super heavy blackened deathcore epics bookend a collection of gothic Nick Cave-meets-Swans experimentation. If Murder by Death was a metal band, they might make something similar. Good stuff.
Favorite track: I Am Healed.

Samie Bufalino hardcore written by extreme metal heads, and a goth.

about

Cult Leader is a chaotic band from Salt Lake City, Utah. “A Patient Man” was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge, Nails, High On Fire). From the first hits of opener “I Am Healed” Cult Leader take listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride. Much of the album follows this blueprint. Songs like “Curse of Satisfaction”, “Craft of Mourning”, and “Share My Pain” are driven by a weave work of unorthodox metallic riffing and fueled by hyper-aggressive percussion. While the tech- nical proficiency is impressive, it’s in their use of dynamics where they truly shine. The album contains four beautifully brooding epics; “To: Achlys”, “A World of Joy”, title track “A Patient Man”, and “The Broken Right Hand of God”. Each one of them carries a maturation and sense of melody that few “extreme” bands have within their arsenal. Proving that aggressive music still has much to offer the world in terms of originality, creativity, and emotion.
